Ok, I have been bulking since late august and have gained some considerable mass, and as expected a good deal of bodyfat along with that. I am 5?10 230lbs about 20%bf with a 38 inch waist.
During this time I followed JB?s massive eating, exactly at first, but I just was not gaining any weight, so I upped the calories to about 5000 and was not as clean with the diet. Here is an example of the meals I normally consume.
Meal 1-9 whole eggs, 2 pork sausage patties, a couple cups of oats, with some whole milk **workout***(followed by Surge)
Meal2- potato, low fat yogurt,, couple cups of oats, couple scoops of Metabolic Drive
Meal3- 2 pieces of chicken(not sure about weight, but they are pretty big), potato some veggies(usually broccoli and carrots)
Meal4- piece of steak, cottage cheese, olive oil, whole milk, veggies
Meal 5- 2 lean hamburger, olive oil, cottage cheese, whole milk
Meal6- same as meal 6
One of the reasons I stayed away from a very clean bulk is simply because I do not gain as much mass, but I am starting to get worried about the considerable amount of bf I?m getting along with it, and the not so healthy food I?ve been consuming .
I?m not where I want to be in terms of mass yet, (I espically want to broaden my shoulders out a bit before I diet, maybe around 240lbs) so I am hesitant to cut.
Should I ignore my instincts and lean out for awhile? Or should I ignore all the fat, get up 240, then cut down? And please note I am not worried about my pretty little ab definition, rather I just don?t want muscle gains to be smaller than fat gains.
NOTE**-I have more hamburger than steak and other red meat strictly for financial reasons.
Training info: I just finished up AofW, QD, and WM, and I plan to take on ABBH 1 while supplementing 8 weeks to monster shoulders. Do you guys recommend that I start doing some slow paced cardio on off days if I continue to bulk?
I know this post may be annoying to some of you, but I?m just looking for a little guidance. Thanks in advance.
